Kenya Petit AB is what we like to call a 'guzzler'. This coffee is so drinkable and session-able, that you'll be pouring your second cup straight after that last sip. 

Tasting notes: Pineapple, cherry and kiwi fruit, with great body and structure. Panela sweetness and black tea on the finish.

Petit is a small coffee estate located in Kiambu County, in Kenya’s central highlands. The estate is owned by Peter Kugi Ndugo, who established it in 2010. Peter grew up in the area and is the son of a coffee farmer. After leaving his family’s shamba (‘farm’ in Swahili) to pursue a successful career in finance, Peter decided to return to his village when he retired. He inherited uncultivated land from his family (his elder siblings inherited his father’s coffee shambas) and decided to plant coffee and bananas and to keep dairy cows. Peter has since acquired more land and now has three coffee shambas totalling 10 acres, which make up the Petit estate.

Petit sits in the foothills of the extinct volcano, Mt Kenya, in an area defined by its bright red, nutrient-rich, volcanic soil and cool climate. These geographical conditions are ideal for exceptional coffee production and contribute to the outstanding quality of this lot. At the time of planting, Peter chose the SL-28 and SL-34 varieties that are most commonly found in central Kenya, specifically because they produce a high-quality flavour profile. He has also planted a small amount of Batian, a newer, hardier, hybrid that has been bred for high yields and disease resistance, coupled with a high potential for excellent cup quality. The varieties are harvested and processed together, as separation is very challenging to achieve during the busy harvest period.

Besides planting high-quality varieties and using excellent farming practices, Peter decided early on to build his own wet mill – or “factory” as they are known in Kenya – on the estate. This allows him to process the coffee independently rather selling his coffee cherries to a cooperative or private mill.
